My 21 month old will only sleep with me. For a month or so she would get nursed to sleep, and then get moved into her toddler bed for the majority of the night. In what was practically a mutual decision, she night-weaned (meaning she went a couple nights not doing any nursing, and then I couldn't let her because it hurt too much). Now I'm lucky if she sleeps more than an hour or two in her bed, and especially the last week or so, I'm lucky if she's asleep for an hour or two at a time period.
I'm due to have a baby mid-February, and am really concerned about how she will be when I deliver. I am very much pro-bedsharing; but I do need some more space since she tends to flop in her sleep and will kick my stomach. The kicker is she has NEVER gone to bed without me, and her father (who I've mentioned before) was so inconsistent with her that I'm the only thing she's ever had to rely on.
I have NCSS, and have been reading it; but it really doesn't cover what to do if your child was neglected/abused by one parent when the other wasn't around. I am seeing a psychologist and have been working on helping her get over her issues with men, but is there anything I can do to help her with sleep? Any resources I can look into on helping her? She's not sleeping well, I'm not sleeping well, and it's making it very difficult to be a good patient mommy at times.
